I was lucky that I picked Timeo Hotel to stay in Taormina.. Very good nostalgic hotel, very professional personel and great location with great view.. My room was excellent.. Good size, great view with a balcony.. I will go back to Timeo at least once more...

We had 5 gorgeous nights at Hotel Timeo. We booked a deluxe sea view room in the main Timeo building. This was on the lower level of the building (lift to lower level). The room was delightful and fairly spacious. The doors off the room opened onto a little terrace, which over looked the main garden. Sometimes there are private... More

Excellent hotel in Taromina well located adjacent to the Teatro Greco. Impeccable service with very helpful concierge. Great views of Mount Etna. Lovely large room. Beautiful terrace for scrumptious breakfast.

We stayed three nights at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo (June 29 – July 2, 2015). I booked a classic room with village view for two adults and one child, rate was 638 Euro/night, including tax and breakfast. As a Leaders Club member I also used a voucher for a complimentary night, so we didn’t have to pay for three nights.... More

I am a huge Belmond fan. I have stayed at the Caruso,Cipriani,Villa San Michele and Charleston Place hotels . All of them fantastic. Unfortunately my stay at the Timeo did not start well. I made arrangements for three rooms, the two rooms for my friends were ready, mine was not. I was told my room would not be ready until... More

We chose Sicily as our destination to celebrate our anniversary. Two weeks of sheer delights - what a wonderful island. Our last stop was the Grand Hotel Timeo having heard that our last image of Sicily should be Taormino. Our travel agent had let the staff know that this was our anniversary and they went over the top! A wonderful... More

This is an exceptionally beautiful and expensive hotel. We stayed 3 nights for an important birthday. The public areas of the hotel (restaurant, bar, lobby, gardens) are gorgeous with the best location and views in Taormina. You walk literally 100 m to the gates of the famous Greek Theatre, and the lower gates of the gardens exit to the beautiful... More
